Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy encountered a distressing incident during his ‘Memantha Siddham’ bus yatra at Ajit Singh Nagar in Vijayawada when unidentified assailants attacked his bus with stones from a catapult. The Chief Minister, along with YSRCP leaders, was atop the bus, responding to supporters when miscreants hurled stones towards them. One of the stones struck the Chief Minister on his forehead, just above his left eye, causing a minor injury. MLA Vellampalli Srinivas, who accompanied the CM, also sustained a minor injury in the incident.
Despite the unexpected attack, immediate medical aid was administered to the Chief Minister and the MLA inside the bus. Despite the injury, Jagan continued his bus yatra after receiving first aid.
Local YSRCP leaders in Vijayawada have raised suspicions regarding the involvement of opposition factions, particularly the Telugu Desam Party (TDP), in the attack. However, no concrete evidence has been presented to confirm these allegations, and the attackers’ identities remain unknown.
The incident has prompted broader discussions about public figures’ safety and the region’s escalating political rivalries. Law enforcement authorities are actively investigating the matter to identify the culprits and prevent similar occurrences. The attack on CM Jagan has elicited widespread condemnation, with calls for maintaining peaceful conduct in politics and upholding the principles of the democratic process.
